This paper examines the challenges of teaching technical courses through e-learning in Nigerian tertiary institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The COVID-19 pandemic has widespread after-effect on education systems all over the world, with Nigeria, not an exception. Lack of the requirements needed for remote education during the world-wide lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has impeded teaching and learning. In the underdeveloped world, home education worked well for a few students who had adequate resources accessible to them and were adaptable to remote learning. This has not just affected teaching and learning but has posed a big problem in teaching technical courses. Problems associated with teaching technical courses in Nigeria during the pandemic lockdown especially the difficulties in handling practical and technical processes online is discussed. Students and educators at different programmes at the Federal Polytechnic Nekede Owerri, Nigeria will be interviewed to ascertain the most pressing problems. The paper will also proffer possible solutions through its recommendations at the different levels of the concerned stakeholders in the Nigerian education sector.
